Protection against genocide: mission impossible?

Front Cover
Praeger, 2000 - History - 193 pages
Riemer and his contributors argue for a global human rights regime capable of preventing, combatting, and punishing the crime of genocide. Such a regime, they assert, will benefit from significant international changes, serious attention to prevention, effective monitoring, keenly targeted sanctions, a standing anti-genocidal police force, a philosophy of just humanitarian intervention, and a permanent international criminal tribunal.
